Totara TXP

Government Body

Processing and issuing DBS checks for England, Wales, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man to inform employers and safeguard the public.

Supporting workplace learning through the entire employee lifecycle.

The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) is a non-departmental public body of the UK Home Office. The DBS enables organisations in the public, private and voluntary sectors to make safer recruitment decisions by identifying candidates who may be unsuitable for certain work, especially involving children or vulnerable adults, and provides wider access to criminal record information through its disclosure service for England and Wales.

DBS initiated a tender process to select a new LMS and associated supplier via the Home Office’s eTendering portal, in response to which Titus proposed an integrated solution based on the Totara Talent Experience Platform — incorporating Totara Learn, Engage and Perform. The proposed solution scored highest out of the options submitted as part of the process, based on how closely it fitted DBS’s current and future needs, and Titus was commissioned to deliver the project.

Totara TXP — facilitating lifelong learning and personal development.

The new platform provides a framework for DBS to separately address formal learning via Totara Learn, informal learning with Totara Engage and performance management via Totrara Perform.

Integrated training from onboarding onwards

A key requirement was to develop a platform which supported users through their entire learning journey, from onboarding through to compliance training and performance management.

The new platform ensures employees feel supported and involved from their first day in the organisation, with compliance tracking, certifications and custom reporting helping DBS to recognise and reward career milestones.

Social and collaborative learning opportunities

Another key project goal was to offer a more social and collaborative method to create more meaningful learning experiences for DBS users, building engagement with their e-learning programmes.

The LXP element of the solution, Totara Engage, helps facilitate two-way communication across DBS, with social-media-inspired interactive tools and seamless integration with popular messaging platforms bringing teams closer together.

Best-in-class technology to support effective learning

Totara TXP also aligns with DBS’s strategic aim of leveraging best-in-class digital systems to deliver high-quality, modern and forward-thinking learning for their employees.

As an integrated platform which is under continual development, and receives frequent upgrades, the new Totoara TXP offers DBS a futureproof solution which will adapt and grow to meet developing needs over time.
